FOREWORD 



Bilt-Well has stood as a measuring stick for 
the millwork industry of this country ever 
since 1866. Leadership has been maintained 
during these seventy-one years in quality, 
technique and design. With this unusual 
length of service in mind, we have issued 
this latest book of Bilt-Well Designs as a 
Celebration Number dedicated to thousands 
of Architects who have specified Bilt-Well 
Millwork, to thousands of Builders who have 
installed it, and the millions of American 
families living in Bilt-Well furnished homes 
as well as the millions we hope will build 
them in the future. 

This year, which carries us into a new era, 
finds us looking forward with renewed con- 
fidence to further satisfactory and pleasant 
relations with our business associates. 
Deeply appreciative of generous patronage 
in the past, and mindful of developments 
already on the way, we present for your 
consideration the most up-to-date and best 
balanced designs ever offered in the history 
of this company.

BILT-WELL , 
ENTRANCES I 



That "the front entrance creates 
the first impression" is carefully 
considered in preparing the de- 
signs shown on Pages 18 to 41. 
Beautiful entrances and doors of 
authentic architectural design to 
meet the most exacting taste are 
illustrated in groups according to 
architectural style so that the ar- 
chitect, the builder, and the home 
owner may be assisted in mak- 
ing a selection in the desired 
classification with utmost confi- 
dence that their choice will be 
in harmony with the style of the 
building contemplated. 



DESIGNS AND STANDARD SIZES OF BILT-WELL EN- 
TRANCES ARE ILLUSTRATED ON PAGES 18 TO 41.

BILT-WELL WINDOWS 
CASEMENTS, SHUTTERS 

Due to their size and prominent location, 
windows are of vast importance to the 
exterior appearance of the house or apart- 
ment. A wide selection of Bilt-Well de- 
signs of windows are shown in complete 
settings on Pages 45 to 54 and are offered 
as suggestions for architecturally correct 
adaptations. These, when carefully se- 
lected, will enhance the exterior as well 
as the interior beauty. Bilt-Well Case- 
ments, Windows, and Shutters are of the 
most widely accepted lines, and this is an 
indication of the high standard of qual- 
ity being offered, made possible only 
through completely equipped factories. 
Master craftsmen and modern machinery 
are engaged in their production, assuring 
efficiency, accuracy, and uniformity.

BILT-WELL PORCH COLUMNS 
POSTS AND BALUSTRADES 

Porches are very desirable adjuncts to the 
complete house or apartment, and when 
trimmed with Bilt-Well porch parts will add 
greatly to the appearance. 

Bilt-Well has perfected porch parts of good 
proportion and correct architectural de- 
sign, which are not surpassed by any other 
line. These designs will be of invaluable 
assistance to the architect in designing this 
prominent part of the house or apartment.

BILT-WELL 
INTERIOR DDDRS 



Just as Bilt-Well Exterior Doors 
give character to the entrance, so 
do Bilt-Well Interior Doors make 
a beautiful, decorative effect for 
interiors. In addition to their un- 
usual beauty, Bilt-Well doors give 
long satisfactory service, because 
of the scientific processes em- 
ployed in their manufacture. 






Bilt-Well standards are main- 
tained uniformly month after 
month, and year after year, al- 
ways assuring a high standard 
of quality in both workmanship 
and materials.

The designs of mantels and man- 
tel shelves which are illustrated 
on Pages 93 to 98 are outstanding 
examples of excellent design, fine 
workmanship, and good mate- 
rial. They give the owner great 
pride and are ideal for that prom- 
inent position in the center of 
things which they occupy.

The stairway is one of the most 
important features in the home 
because of the prominent posi- 
tion it occupies. Since its design

style of the home, it should be 
carefully chosen.

planned, and then properly con- 
structed with exact precision by 
experienced craftsmen.

Hilt-Well Windows 

Bilt-Well Windows, which include frames and 
sash, are manufactured of clear soft pine either 
in single, twin, triple, quadruple, or quintette 
jroupings; however, the standard is single and 
twin openings. The frames have the desired 
modern narrow lines on both side jambs and 
mullions. They are constructed with weather- 
l ight joints, and uniformity, due to the latest 
automatic machinery, insures that the sash will 
slide up and down with the maximum of ease.

Shutters 

The sash of Bilt-Well double-hung windows are constructed with mortised and 
tenoned joints at bottom rails to give long satisfactory service. The glass is of 
good quality and is carefully inspected, according to a rigid set of rules. The 
frames are standardized for wood siding, brick veneer or stucco. 

All Bilt-Well check-rail windows are made a standard thickness of 1%" scant; 
however, there is also a line of plain-rail windows produced in iy 8 " thickness. 

Bilt-Well Shutters are manufactured of Clear Soft Pine in iy B " thickness 
except designs BW-3024 and BW-3026 which are made of dressed 1" material. 
The various parts are joined with tongued and grooved joints. All Bilt-Well 
shutters having stiles, rails, and panels are assembled with mortised and 
tenoned joints. The panels are of solid wood dressed to a finished thickness 
of %".

Bilt-Well Clos-Tite 
Wnnd Casements 

Years of experimenting to accomplish a weather- 
tight casement has resulted in the perfection of 
this Bilt-Well product. Bilt-Well Clos-Tite Wood 
Casements provide the maximum provisions for 
air-conditioning and also exhibit a modern ap- 
pearance with the narrow but sturdily con- 
structed sections. The Sash and Transoms are 
equipped with auxiliary (double glazing) glass, 
which is held in the sash with thumb-release 
fasteners. A moisture proof gasket is used in 
sealing the installation of auxiliary glass to re- 
duce the transmission of air and to provide maxi- 
mum insulation so essential for correctly air-con- 
ditioned homes. Bilt-Well Clos-Tite Casements are 
Burglar-Proof, too. When the sash are closed it is 
definitely impossible for burglars to enter without 
breaking the glass. The sash are scientifically 
treated with a chemical solution and the metal 
hardware is Cadmium finished, both of which 
give protection against atmospheric changes. The 
frame is put together with tongued and grooved 
joints in the mullions and transom bars, as well 
as in the intersection of head, sill, and side 
jambs. The sash is mortised and tenoned at 
the corners, which is one of the many reasons 
why Bilt-Well -Clos-Tite Casements have such fine 
lasting qualities. Bilt-Well Clos-Tite Casements 
are equipped with the nationally known brand 
" Wind or" Hardware.

Bilt-Well Clns-Tite 
Wand Casements 

Washing windows becomes a simple operation 
with Bilt-Well Clos-Tite Casements, as can be read- 
ily appreciated from the above illustrations. When 
the sash is open, sufficient space permits cleaning 
the outside of the glass while standing in the room. 




I he top of all ventilators are equipped with a spring 
bronze metal cap covering the upper edge of the sash. This 
is also a combination weatherstrip which functions by seal- 
ing the clearance at the top when the sash is closed. 



The lock handle illustrated at 
the right is standard equipment. 
This draws the sash into posi- 
tive contact with the weather- 
stripping and also serves as 
a lock. 






The auxiliary glass is readily removed or replaced by 
releasing the glass from the sash with a sliding thumb 
fastener. 



The top closer in the above 
illustration is a neat mechan- 
ical device which is installed 
at the top and which auto- 
matically draws the sash into 
a closed position, thereby seal- 
ing the opening against the 
infiltration of air, rain, or dust. 




This illustration shows the operator entirely 
concealed under the stool. It will regulate the 
sash in any open position up to a 90° angle. 
It also serves as a lock when the sash is closed. 




This "On The Stool" operator is used when a radiator or 
some other object obstructs the turning of the crank of 
the other operator, illustrated at the left. The operation is 
exactly the same and exclusive use of this particular operator 
may be preferred throughout the house.

Hilt-Well Clean-E-Ze Casements 




An inside view showing the beautiful 
effects accomplished with the use of Bilt- 
Well Clean-E-Ze Casements. 



A typical installation of Bilt-Well Clean- 
E-Ze Casements, showing the sash swung 
open supported by the specially designed 
hinges, leaving adequate room for cleaning. 



Bilt-Well Clean-E-Ze Casements are a low priced 
unit that is efficient, easy to operate, substantial 
and adaptable to all types of wall construction. It 
combines many of the features found only in the 
higher priced units. The hinges used are a com- 
bination three-leaf butt and surface hinge. They 
are arranged to answer the same purpose as the ex- 
tension hinge — that of cleaning the outside of the 
glass from the inside. The sash is disengaged from 
the middle leaf of the hinge by simply turning two 
screws which allow it to swing around so that the 
outside becomes easily accessible for cleaning. 
A bar-type operator is furnished as standard equip- 
ment. It is easily installed, has no parts to get out 



of order, will hold the sash rigid in any position, 
and acts as an auxiliary locking device when the 
sash is closed. 

The locking device is installed at the side jamb 
and is designed with a bevel plate which draws 
the sash into a weather-tight position in the frame. 
Interior screens of wood are used and the sash may 
be opened or closed without removing these as pro- 
visions have been made for. the bar of the operator 
to pass through the bottom rail of the screen. Storm 
sash, which are considered additional equipment, 
are used to replace the screens in the winter, and 
further provision against infiltration of air can be 
made by specifying weatherstripping with Bilt-Well 
Clean-E-Ze Casement Units.

The selection offered here consists of stock 
sizes of casements divided into six, eight,, 
nine, and twelve lights of glass, without 
hardware. 

Each two designs of windows are com- 
panions insofar as the height of the opening 
is concerned. The six light casement is used 
where space will not permit a wide opening; 
while the nine light casement is used where 
space is available and additional natural 
light is required.

Casements always seem to give the house 
or apartment more attractiveness than any 
other type of window, and in the illustration 
at the left is a typical example of the at- 
tractiveness of this casement. 

BW-2854 (on the left) is very desirable for 
lighting and ventilating rooms such as bath- 
rooms, dens, halls, or dressing alcoves. 

Casement BW-2856 (on the right) is the log- 
ical choice for medium or large size rooms 
which require the maximum of day light 
and ventilation.

TYPICAL UNIT 

Another inside view showing Bilt-Well Basement Complete Unit in a 
locked position. 

The Bilt-Well Basement Complete Unit is given the "Bilt-Well" 
scientific process of chemically treating the sash and coating 
the frame to protect against the weather. Galvanized rust- 
proof wire cloth is applied on the insect screens. The hinges 
and locks of the sash also have a rust-proof finish. 
The ventilating feature is especially attractive because the sash 
is retained in an open position by a sliding slot in the hinges. 
This eliminates the unsatisfactory method of using a hook to 
hold the sash open. The Bilt-Well Basement Complete Unit, 
which is water-proof and equipped with rust-proof hardware! 
leads the field of all basement windows. 

Condensation is prevented on all but the glass, and this can be 
eliminated with the addition of Bilt-Well Basement Storm Sash

Hilt- Well Combination Doors — The All-Year-Around Door 



The "all-the-year-around" doors save fuel in winter and 
keep out insects in summer. The Bilt-Well Combination 
is really two doors in one — a screen door in summer and 
a storm door in winter — at a much lower price than both 
taken separately. In addition to this, it is not necessary 
to re-hang a combination door with changing seasons. 

Bilt-Well Combination Doors are based on over a half 
century of experience in door manufacturing. The screen 



and storm panels fit into a rabbet and are so constructed 
that they prevent any water from getting into any of the 
joints. Each part is carefully machined, and when the 
storm panel is in place the possibility of drafts is elim- 
inated. Interchangeable panels are held in the door by 
four fasteners which release with a screw driver from 
the inside.

offer the utmost in convenience, appearance, and durability.

trim protects the corners. It is also an advan- 
tage in decorating to have a stopping point 
between rooms with different wall trims. The 
designs illustrated on this page are for a typical 
Colonial treatment although BW-3614 runs very 
much in the direction of the "Modern".

Bilt-Well Modern Designs of Telephone Cabinets 

There is a distinct advantage in having one of these telephone cabinets where the 'phone can be 
kept within easy reach and still not be in the way. It eliminates using valuable floor space for a 
'phone table, and in addition it creates the impression of completeness. 



BW-3736 and BW-3740 are manufactured in Red Gum 
trimmed with Birch, concealed structural parts of 
Clear Soft Pine. Put together, but without hardware. 
This makes the cabinet suitable for either a natural 
finish or enameled surface. Recess required for both 
above cabinets — V-TXfa" wide, 3'-l" high, and 4" deep.

Bilt-Well Nu-Style 
Kitchen Eabinets 




The illustrations on these two pages show actual 
installations of Bilt-Well Nu-Style Kitchen ^Kabi- 
nets. All of these attractive lay-outs have been 
developed with standard units selected from the 
complete line shown on Page 113. This method 
of furnishing the cabinets in units has two dis- 
tinct advantages. First: — It affords the housewife 
or the architect freedom in arranging the equip- 
ment for greatest utility, convenience, and effi- 
ciency. Second: — It makes the installation eco- 
nomical, these cabinets have been standardized 
and are produced at a minimum cost. 

These outstanding examples of beautiful, eco- 
nomical, and practical kitchen cabinets offer the 
housewife the utmost attractiveness through un- 
usual simplicity which eliminates all dust-collect- 
ing frills. Bilt-Well Nu-Style Kitchen Kabinets 
make kitchen work a delight, introducing a type 
of convenience the housewife has never be- 
fore experienced. These cabinets are offered in

three beautiful finishes, and are painted at the 
factory unless ordered in natural wood. These 
finishes are the very latest colors: Modern Green, 
Lustrous Ivory, and Sanitary White, which are 
the standard colors for present day enamel ware, 
kitchen ranges, and refrigerators. 

The handles are of hardwood, always furnished 
black unless ordered without paint. They pro- 
vide a firm finger grip, and are located within 
easy reach to eliminate stooping and stretching 
to open drawers and doors. These kitchen cabi- 
nets have an auxiliary base (not part of the 
cabinet) set 2 inches back from the face of the 
cabinets to provide toe space. This permits stand- 
ing up close in a comfortable working position. 
By eliminating unnecessary steps, and simplifying 
and facilitating kitchen work, "Bilt-Well" becomes 
the one type of cabinet that meets all demands 
of the modern kitchen.

All Bilt-Well Nu-Style Kitchen Kabinet units are 
equipped with a combination top consisting of fabri- 
cated wood and inlaid linoleum surface with colors 
to match that which will be used on the cabinets. 
It should be determined when ordering the cabinets 
whether or not a one piece top, the full length of 
he cabinet, is desired and the order should specify 
these details. These linoleum tops can be used 

with porcelain enameled iron, monel metal, stain- 
ess steel or linoleum composition sinks and cabinet 

tops. This can be handled in a very satisfactory 

way by ordering the sink top to cover cabinet sink 

unit only. Stainless steel and monel metal have 

their natural metallic surface while porcelain enam- 
eled iron and linoleum composition sinks are carried 

in standard shades of green, ivory and white to 

match the three "Bilt-Well" colors. 

Standard equipment is: - Two faucet holes, eight 

inches (center to center), and, a 4" drain opening for 
Scoville or "Standard Sanitary" K878 Crumb Cup 

Dual Strainer. This strainer and faucets are not fur-

These illustrations give a general 
idea of the kitchen cabinet made to 
meet the individual needs of the 
housewife according to the size of 
the family, the location of windows* 
and the relative position of the range - 
and the refrigerator. The word cus- 
tom-made implies that the cabinets 
are manufactured especially for the 
particular kitchen for which the,y 
are ordered. Therefore, the illustra- 
tions are tentative suggestions for an 
attractive arrangement. The depth 
of the upper section in both illustra- 
tions is l'-2", and the depth of the 
lower section is l'-10". The cabinets 
run to the ceiling and 8'-6" is con- 
sidered the standard height. These 
cabinets are furnished without backs 
unless the order states that these are 
to be included.

about Bilt-Well Custom-Mad 
Kitchen Cabinets is that the drawers 
and shelves can be arranged accord

this necessitates more than the minimum 
amount of cabinet space. ' l
